How was your experience with Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center?
While I have not had to go through all of the procedures that my wife has had, I have had to undergo some testing and I felt like everyone was explained to me in a pretty clear manner. For my experience, I had to deal with the nursing staff much more closely than Dr. Nasseri.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center?
For me, it would have been helpful to get a more detailed rundown of all of our fertility options in the beginning - everything from Clomid, to IUI, to IVF. I would have asked more questions upfront.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center?
In general, I feel like most fertility clinics are just trying to recruit as many patients as possible. In the beginning of this process, I did feel like we were a number but most recently, Dr. Nasseri came up with an alternative treatment for us because we cannot currently afford IVF. I felt like he really worked with us as a couple and provided us with the best option that we can move forward with right away.
Describe the protocols Ali Nasseri used in your cycles at Valley Hospital Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Personally, due to my wife's recurrent pregnancy loss, I had to have a full blood workup, genetic testing, karyotyping and semen analysis. At the end of the day, everything was "clear" on my end so aside from recurrent pregnancy loss, we are stuck in the grey area of "unexplained infertility". We are currently undergoing our first cycle with Clomid.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I have dealt with the nursing staff the most. Every nurse is so nice and warm. Always making jokes and keeping you at ease. I would definitely recommend them as a team.
Describe your experience with Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
I'm not sure if this is a weakness specific to our clinic, but I feel like the diagnostic process took a long time. And unfortunately we still have no solid "answer". I have never had an issue getting an appointment with the clinic so that is a definite strength.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Ali Nasseri at Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
I'm unsure of the costs associated with our care. I do know that we currently cannot afford IVF at the moment. I believe that is estimated around $12000 before medication.
Describe Ali Nasseri's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Valley Hospital Fertility Center.
I'm not familiar with the doctor's approach to single vs. multiple transfers. We have not gotten this far in the process.
